Project Description

Register now for a 5-week digital storytelling workshop!

Digital storytelling is empowering. Participants have a chance to build confidence needed to enable them to escape social exclusion and access further opportunities. The work raises self esteem and provides people with the self belief needed to progress in life. Digital storytelling can be a powerful means of personal, creative expression. Participants are given a chance to use their own resources to tell a personal story, to express their own views and build their own understandings. Completed stories when shared with friends, or the public can be a powerful means of expanding the diversity of voices. Digital storytelling creates a space for people excluded from the corridors of media power to be seen and heard.

NISA is excited to offer this free 5-week workshop in digital storytelling.

The sessions will be held twice weekly, for 5 weeks. Each session is 2 1/2 hours.
